Hello all! 

I just found the forum via searching Google for reviews and feedback regarding the Asylum Rx razor. I stumbled upon the Asylum Rx Razor Tour thread and was very impressed with the community here, so I felt compelled to sign up. 

A bit about myself - I'm relatively new to wet shaving (just over a year), and am starting to branch out and experiment with new stuff. My current go to is the Muhle R41 paired with the Ikon Bulldog handle (a heavenly combo for first pass) followed by the EJ DE89 for my XTG and ATG passes, using either Feather or Astra SP blades. This has been my bread and butter combination, but lately I've been trying new things. 

Just this week I decided to dive into the straight razor world, and pulled the trigger on a Ralf Aust 5/8". The first shave was a frenzy of weepers, so I think some technique refinement is definitely in order. It's certainly a change from the DE's that I'm accustomed to. I'm also looking into SE stuff and was in the process of researching the Rx.

Anyhow, I'm glad to have found the community here and look forward to meeting some folks.

-Rick
